  1. Awake 1969, May 22, pages 14,15 (302 and 303/768) Author of article, under authorization of Top Spiritual Leadership, "prophesied" how world will end in next few years. Now and today you @BillyTheKid46 made claim how GB will never again do the same mistake? :))) And we doing good if we believe you? *** w60 12/1 p. 736 Announcements *** WHAT IS YOUR FUTURE? Do you know what the next few years will bring? No man can know all things that will take place, but what the final outcome will be is no secret. That is because God’s Word contains the answer. Your future is a part of that answer. Find your place there. Read the two hard-bound books From Paradise Lost to Paradise Regained and “New Heavens and a New Earth.” Send $1.25 now and receive free the two comforting and thought-provoking booklets Healing of the Nations Has Drawn Near and God’s Kingdom Rules—Is the World’s End Near? Watchtower 1969 pages 302-304 If you are a young person, you also need to face the fact that you will never grow old in this present system of things. Why not? Because all the evidence in fulfillment of Bible prophecy indicates that this corrupt system is due to end in a few years. Of the generation that observed the beginning of the "last days" in 1914, Jesus Foretold: "This generation will by no means pass away until all these things occur."-Matt. 24:34 For one. You have to understand the concept of a 1000 years is 1 day of God. Therefore, prophetic terminology falls under and within that parameter. Then, “if” “is” becomes a notable instrument. The second: An argument long-drawn by ?Winsider. Who is “that generation” that can be applied to those assertions? ?Winsider just like James and the rest of skeptics here, can’t fathom how anyone from 1914 could see the grand day of God. I have already mentioned how the 1914 generation, still exist today, but also what time frame that generation can include. Watchtower 1969 page 303 True, those who do not understand where we are in the stream of time from God's viewpoint will call this impractical. But which is really practical: preparing yourself for a position in this world that soon will pass away? or working toward surviving this system's end and enjoying eternal life in God's righteous new order? -1 John 2:17. In these urgent times, as this wicked system writhes in its death pangs, this counsel from God's Word Is most practical for all who want to keep living: "My son, my law do not forget, and my commandments may your heart observe, because length of days and years of life and peace will be added to you."-Prov. 3:1, 2. Then that phrase you cling to become as an “eventually” or “ultimately” the design of God’s judgment. Therefore, if you cannot understand what you are reading, you will never understand period. To ?Winsider, he would suggest the above proves how correct ex-witnesses are. However, he is blinded and tainted as well. What wisdom can be said about a blind man leading the blind.
  2. When words are not twisted. You are correct. It continues to be a ludicrous and humiliating way ex-witnesses as yourself continue to stoke false allegations. The fiasco ex-witnesses perpetrated and escalated by misrepresenting of watchtower literature. You would think by now you people would be wiser to continue a false claim that the Watchtower claimed 1975 to be the end of the world. If Pastor Russell didn't signal that for 1914, then why would the Watchtower signal it for 1975. Fred Franz was by and large a better theologian than anyone in the Watchtower put together at that time. Those that he taught, come with sound understanding about a prophetic time line. The irony, even John Paul ll mentioned 1975 to be a "new birth". Something some of us used to compare how right the Watchtower was for that in 1975. Not a new birth, but the birth of pangs.
  3. This perceived error was made up by people like you Srecko. Ex-Witnesses with nothing better to do with their lives than to make the 6000 years a code to mean Armageddon. I will ask you were found such language within the Watchtower publicans that ex-witnesses won't take out of context. This is a good reason to have learned Jesus words about staying alert and be visual to the impending signs.
  4. This is why you never understood the timeline of a prophetic event. Of course BC607 and AD1914 hold a significance. 1975 brought upon humanity a distinction with that prophetic line. This is also a reason why the Watchtower stopped advertising any prophetic events after 1984. I believe they even mentioned it in some publications that modern witnesses believe because of the 1975 fiasco, the Watchtower would no longer print such enlightenment. However, after 1984 it would be to those that actually believe in God and have faith in God this process would no longer be needed. Of course the first view is a wrong view to those that understand the process. Obviously you never did. Generally most critics here don’t. Especially those that continue to claim, being a righteous witness. Why? Because God never really gave you insight, and now as an opposer even less. *** sl chap. 1 pp. 9-10 par. 7 The Outlook After Sixty Years of World Distress *** The stockpiling of nuclear weapons for missile warfare disquiets the whole world. It threatens the existence of all mankind. Compared with the situation in the first half of 1914, the foundations for preventing international warfare short of a third world war, introduced by nuclear bombs, are very shaky indeed. This holds true in 1975 in spite of the existence of the world organization for peace and security, the United Nations with 138 member nations, and the coordinated International Court of Justice, at The Hague. Well knowing the instability of human relations, international statesmen are grimly working at establishing a “peace for our generation,” or, better, “a peace for generations to come.” The announcement “Man’s salvation out of world distress at hand!” comes not from those statesmen. Peace with endless stability will without fail shortly come to distressed humanity, but not in their way. In a better way! This is why that kind of witness wakes up each day worrying about the end of times. They need to know, so they can come into the good graces of God. A poor man's excuse for not having faith. Remember, no one is obligated to reason with those with a weak heart. It's up to them to prove themselves to God. Therefore, there is no reason to enlighten anyone here on something they should already know in their hearts if they consider themselves witnesses.
  5. You seem to be avoiding the word “spirituality”. The expertise the Watchtower offers is with scripture NOT social behavior. Witnesses are not brainwashed as you continue to imply. They are not robots of God. The Watchtower is NOT the people’s temple. The watchtower is NOT the Branch Davidian's. If you believe they are just like any other ex-witness, you would need to understand that ideology is meaningless, because it’s a false application of the truth. You want to continue to use a misapplication of NOT wanting to separate church and state. If Jesus did this, why do you continue to defy Jesus and his words? This brings to the reality what is being applied. The spiritual needs of the congregation, not a secular imposed community secular authority service.
  6. I would have to ask the same thing I mentioned to James. When did “all” preachers” then develop a homosexual trait just for being priest? Are all Catholic priest gay? Are all victims boys? Kathleen M. Sands To approach this topic, it is first necessary to clarify key terms and concepts. Foremost among these is the term “homosexuality” itself, a word of late nineteenth-century European provenance, bearing connotations that never were universal and that now are contested even in the West. One problem is that “active” and “passive” male homoeroticism have been distinguished in many places and times, with only the latter classified as true homosexuality. Another difficulty is that the word homosexuality applies indiscriminately to male and female expressions. However, in virtually all existing societies, the situations of men and women differ, and so do the social meanings of their sexualities. Where homoeroticism is legally punished, the sanctions for men are usually more severe, with lighter or even no legal punishments for women. But these disparities do not indicate that female homoeroticism is accepted, for where the sexes occupy separate spheres, existing female homoeroticism may be unknown to men. As a modern Western concept, homosexuality also elides alternative cultural interpretations of homoeroticism, which, according to anthropologist Gilbert Herdt, include transgenerational, transgenderal, and role-structured homoeroticism. Transgenerational homoeroticism is employed in some cultures to initiate adolescent males into adulthood, but is not expected to be a lifelong orientation. Transgenderal homoeroticism involves individuals who belong to a “third sex” or who carry both sexes within themselves. Sexual exchange between these individuals and partners who are genitally alike is not regarded as homoerotic, for the transgendered woman or man in some sense truly belongs to the opposite sex. Role-structural homoeroticism occurs when an individual is called to enact homoerotic relations as part of his or her specific cultural role.
  7. The point here, ex-witnesses as yourself made that claim, not the Watchtower. Suddenly the Watchtower needed to be cops, psychologist, therapist, etc to appease the world and the critics within the Watchtower. They never claimed such expertise, you did! Therefore, they cannot add something that was "forced' upon the Watchtower. 😉
  8. If you are, it is with the strength of knowledge. Something that has NOT been ascertained here. Here, it is purely, emotional. That is a difference when someone agrees with another without intellect. Proper grounds for sustainable research will find, most of the post lack substance to the topic of child sexual abuse. Then again, It also depends on what you mean by not being an expert. If you have firsthand knowledge of my credentials, then we can argue who holds more experience.
  9. Perhaps to ex-witnesses as yourself. In this case, the above mentioned would agree with the false narrative you claim. If anything, by the Watchtower earlier calculations, 1975 brought the beginning of the 6th day of God. We are still in the 6th day of God. That hasn't changed. Does that mean, humanity has to wait 956 years for God to rest? No! The function of creative days doesn't fall under the same category, when looking at the millennial. Another thing, witnesses have not gotten right. To be honest 1975 marked the beginning of end times. Now we are in the path of the birth pangs. Keep in mind what scripture states. When you see these things, the time of the end is not just yet. We are in that point in time. The Watchtower doesn't need to continue to sound any prophecy after that point. It is meant to gather the most loyal to God that can see the process. Everyone that complains, gossips, and falsely entertains the notion the Watchtower is somehow wrong for giving a prophetic timeline for those that obey and stayed faithful to God, are only fooling themselves and have lost the right to that vision of God's insight.
  10. How about that. The little nasty vixen that talked trash about the Watchtower in JWN. This world is small.
  11. What can be said about 1975 that hasn’t been said about 1975? The “fact” people keep misrepresenting what happened about 1975 in a sense that was made clear by the watchtower publication was the objective to a clear narrative about the 6000 years that ?Winsider, Anna, comfortmypeople, outta here keep insisting there was some conspiracy or subliminal message, continues to shoulder a false narrative destructive people want to heighten. Agreeing with ex-witnesses just to bring up a non-issue should tell people how people here want to keep a misrepresentation of the Watchtower alive. Therefore, the word “HONESTY” should be applied to the ones that want to continue to corrupt their minds with wishful thinking. If you weren’t there to personally experience what was going on, Get off it!
  12. As a perception of homosexuality or an inheritance of boys only as a homosexual appearance. Once again, no one here is an expert. Leave the psychology and punishment to those that believe they have the capability to judge those in secular society. Does that make them any better than what scripture can advise over such matters? NO! An infamous example of the APA-MK overlap was the sadistic Dr. Ewen Cameron, who served as both the APA president while running the unlawful, inhumane MK Ultra program experiments using LSD on unsuspecting victims and abusing children. At a July 2013 pedophilia conference held at UK’s prestigious University of Cambridge, research experts concluded: Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males. At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children… Normal males are aroused by children. Does humanity have a better approach than what the Watchtower has advised society for decades? The alarms it has declared, and the PARENTS responsibilities instead of trying to blame others for their own mishandling's of NOT being alert to obvious signs, regardless of circumstances.
  13. How easy it is for ignorant people to just jump in and say, when it comes to pedophilia, yes I agree wholeheartedly and the process should be handled quicker. Hang them high! That insane approach is by not understanding the psychology of how the “government” has to deal with such accusations. It’s NOT one size fits all that the government doesn’t understand, but the interpretation of an individual’s right to a fair and impartial trial, an approach the government has to endure. Therefore, it’s not only the victim the government takes into account but the accused. In the United States, that standard is drawn by professionals of psychology. Specify if: Sexually attracted to males Sexually attracted to females Sexually attracted to both Specify if: Limited to incest Diagnostic Features The diagnostic criteria for pedophilic disorder are intended to apply both to individuals who freely disclose this paraphilia and to individuals who deny any sexual attraction to prepubertal children (generally age 13 years or younger), despite substantial objective evidence to the contrary. Examples of disclosing this paraphilia include candidly acknowledging an intense sexual interest in children and indicating that sexual interest in children is greater than or equal to sexual interest in physically mature individuals. If individuals also complain that their sexual attractions or preferences for children are causing psychosocial difficulties, they may be diagnosed with pedophilic disorder. However, if they report an absence of feelings of guilt, shame, or anxiety about these impulses and are not functionally limited by their paraphilic impulses (according to self-report, objective assessment, or both), and their self-reported and legally recorded histories indicate that they have never acted on their impulses, then these individuals have a pedophilic sexual orientation but not pedophilic disorder. Risk and Prognostic Factors Temperamental. There appears to be an interaction between pedophilia and antisociality, such that males with both traits are more likely to act out sexually with children. Thus, antisocial personality disorder may be considered a risk factor for pedophilic disorder in males with pedophilia. Environmental. Adult males with pedophilia often report that they were sexually abused as children. It is unclear, however, whether this correlation reflects a causal influence of childhood sexual abuse on adult pedophilia. Genetic and physiological. Since pedophilia is a necessary condition for pedophilic disorder, any factor that increases the probability of pedophilia also increases the risk of pedophilic disorder. There is some evidence that neurodevelopmental perturbation in utero increases the probability of development of a pedophilic orientation. Gender-Related Diagnostic Issues Psychophysiological laboratory measures of sexual interest, which are sometimes useful in diagnosing pedophilic disorder in males, are not necessarily useful in diagnosing this disorder in females, even when an identical procedure (e.g., viewing time) or analogous procedures (e.g., penile plethysmography and vaginal photoplethysmography) are available. A true witness should not and would not indulge in any kind of activism that can result in the wrong representation of the Watchtower due to the lack of knowledge that individual brings to the argument. By far, no one here is qualified to administer judgement on a physiological level much less with crimes and punishment. Yet, there are critics of the government approach. I can remember back in the 70s when people wanted to combine homosexuality to pedophilia. “Some psychiatric leaders who were instrumental in removing homosexuality from the American Psychiatric Association’s list of mental disorders in 1973 have been fighting to remove pedophilia as a disorder as well, not to justify the abuse of children but rather to say that being sexually attracted to children is not a mental disorder.” Michael L. Brown author of A Queer Thing Happened to America The first chapter of this book alluded to how the psychiatric field utilized its latest edition of the DSM “bible” to attempt to normalize raping children, initially calling pedophilia a sexual orientation following the footsteps forged by homosexuality as a onetime deviant mental disorder turned sexual orientation morphed into the widely accepted normative sexual choice that it enjoys today. As early as 1998, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) made its objective explicitly clear, maintaining that the negative impact of child sex abuse when adults have sex with children was “overstated” and that: The vast majority of both men and women reported no negative sexual effects from their child sexual experiences. Therefore, to those witnesses wanting to stick their two cents where it doesn’t belong, get off it! You’re neither qualified as an expert nor qualified under the directions of scripture. For ex-witnesses trying to change the argument now, the Watchtower hide those accounts when the BOE letters state otherwise, learn to understand humanity starting with you first before thinking your opinion matters.
  14. Wow! A) Jesus didn't provide no information's to GB, because miracles stopped in 1 century :)) What does one have to do with the other? I’m sure, not even you can sustain such notion. B) Ideas that GB imagined to be "truth" was "empowered" by?? in their everyday Bible reading Who in the world is “??” that can’t be described as the power of God. C) Truth can't be neither imperfect nor perfect. "The Truth" can be - or truth or lie Are you suggesting the apostles and prophets were “perfect"? D) GB statement in WT article: Of course, Jesus did not tell us that his faithful slave would produce perfect spiritual food.” Watchtower 2017 Feb p.26 is complete nonsense. Why? Does this mean the rest of Christendom is dispensing the “correct” spiritual food to its followers knowing full well that in one instance, they “accept” the killing of their fellow man under the claims of patronage? Does that make the POPE, equal to Christ, since the Vatican long held the office of the papacy to be infallible? Does that mean, the Holy Wars are justified? You, out did yourself Srecko. You ex-witnesses make me laugh! If you are going to keep misrepresenting that article. At the very least try to understand “WHY” it was written and for what purpose, it can be compared to the action and behavior of the rest of Christendom as a whole. Not only has this site lost its academic approach, but also the front page caption and description of intelligent people.
  15. Are you somehow suggesting the Old Testament is the Only truth, and the New Testament was inspired by lies? That's a first. Did Jesus see the writers of the OT? Hmm! 🤔
